We said to Mary McNulty:

As a recipient of this award, you have a great responsibility to give back to the writing community
and to achieve your personal and professional goals.

Canning Day, your award-winning story, provides a very personal ride into the countryside of a woman's heart. We'll look forward to seeing more from you during the next few years.

"As to what I will do with the prize money, I have already enrolled in a playwriting class at Bates College. This is an entirely new direction for my writing, but one which I know will develop my skills in creating convincing dialogue and in dramatizing conflicts in my short stories.
I may also get myself a decent office chair.
Others have told me that writing doesn't have to be literally a pain in the neck.
Thank you once again for giving me both encouragement and the opportunity to improve my skills."

- Mary McNulty, Winner of The TenTen Award for Fiction on what she plans to do with the $1,010.00 prize money.
What industry executives in the book publishing industry , are saying about Word Smitten:
"I'm the assistant manager of Online Marketing here at TWBookmark.com, the official website of Warner Books and Little, Brown & Company.
Davina Morgan-Witts of Bookbrowse.com was in our office a few weeks ago and told us how much she admires your site.
We do too!"
- Miriam Parker
AOL Time Warner Book Group
What writers, editors, and agents are saying about Word Smitten:
"The interview looks fine,
as does 'Liquid Paper.'
Thanks for being so careful with both.
You've got a very lively website going here."
All best, Peter Meinke
